What recent attendees are saying:

“By far, your blog and FB page have been the most valuable resource I walked away with from the convention. I downloaded your books that very same weekend and read through them immediately. I plan to read again later this summer while we are on vacation. As a “newbie”, I can tell you that I have to fight off the feelings of being overwhelmed. Yours is a site that reminds me of what truly matters. God bless and keep up the good work – you are making a difference!” ~A HEAV attendee, June 2014

“Karen Debeus is a powerfully anointed speaker, who shows us Jesus. Her messages are encouraging, challenging and accompanied with truth and love.”  -TTD Nashville attendee 2016

“I needed to hear Karen DeBeus! Thanks for reminding me to enjoy every second of this homeschool journey and to stop trying to keep busy prove to anyone that we are teaching & learning! It’s the time spent as a family with God being our master educator!” ~ TTD Nashville attendee 2016

“Thank you for your transparency and sharing some of your family struggles. It’s amazing to see how God turns everything for good for those who love Him.  More importantly, thank you for sharing you passion for Christ!!!” ~ a recent conference attendee

Real Homeschool: Letting Go of the Pinterest-Perfect and Instagram-Ideal Homeschool (Keeping it real doesn’t mean lowering your standards, but choosing to live for God’s standards and not the world’s. Forget what Pinterest says is perfect. What does God’s Word say? Learn why we need to be authentic and real on this journey, and how we can strive for excellence together.)

Don’t Run New Homeschooler: You CAN Do This! (Hear my story- I wanted to run more than anyone, but here we are successfully homeschooling for 10+ years by God’s strength and equipping.)

Simply Homeschool: Have Less Clutter and More Joy: Learn to lessen distractions and focus on what is most important.

If you have a moms group, homeschooling group, conference, or church group looking for a presentation, please contact me.  I would love to speak to your group!

Karen speaks in a real and authentic way and believes as homeschooling families we must encourage one another this way! By sharing her own stories of how God has worked in her homeschool, she desires to walk alongside other homeschooling families to encourage them on their journey!
